The collective intention is able to literally transform the world.
A phenomenon that spreads in recent years through blogs and social media is the collective intention (meditation/prayer). It is the synchronized attention of many people around the world in a particular issue.
Some are quite dubious about whether the thoughts, intentions or prayers can influence the world around them. For a quantum physicist on the other, it is a fact that our thoughts affect the world around us and it is something that has been proven in scientific studies.
What Studies Reveal about Collective Intention
In 1984 there an experimental study took place at three different gatherings of over 7000 people who did meditation each morning and evening for three consecutive weeks. The study took place in Fairfield, Iowa (December 17, 1983-January 6, 1984), The Hague, Holland (December 21, 1984-January 13, 1985) and Washington, DC (July 1-July 10, 1985). The results were surprising. Time series analysis was used in this study to rule out possibilities that the reduction in global terrorism was caused by pre-existing trends, drifts in data or cycles.
Scientists believe this is due to a coherent resonance being created in the Unified Quantum Field by those meditating.
Think of a laser. Its coherent light is established by what is known in physics as the Field Effect. The Field Effect’s principle, according to the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy is “that it is not necessary to act individually on each individual constituent of a system, but that the system can be handled in one stroke at the collective level.”
The 7,000 people meditating created a Field Effect of harmonious coherence that spread throughout the collective–which in turn helped to reduce acts of terrorism (incoherent, disruptive energy).
This effect, also known as the “Maharishi Effect”, has had over 600 scientific studies conducted in 33 countries and in over 250 independent research institutions. The evidence overwhelmingly correlates synchronized group prayer and meditation having extremely positive social, political and economic benefits to the world. Positive correlations for numerous health benefits to the individual were also observed and confirmed.
Today this structured and coherent energy is being calculated by the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), whose logistical home is the well-known Institute of Noetic Sciences. The GCP has been collecting data for over 15 years, with up to 70 host sites worldwide, using random number generators. The GCP notes that, “Random number generators (RNGs) based on quantum tunneling produce completely unpredictable sequences of zeroes and ones. But when a great event synchronizes the feelings of millions of people, our network of RNGs becomes subtly structured. We calculate one in a trillion odds that the effect is due to chance. The evidence suggests an emerging noosphere or the unifying field of consciousness described by sages in all cultures.”
Major world events, such as the 9/11 attack (2001), Nepal’s earthquake (2015), worldwide meditations (2015), along with many other events, have been recorded by the GCP and has shown that the synchronization of RNG’s has occurred when thoughts, emotions and intentions of many people from around the world get synchronized.
Dr. David Edwards, Professor of Government, University of Texas at Austin says:
“I think the claim can be plausibly made that the potential impact of this research exceeds that of any other ongoing social or psychological research program. It has survived a broader array of statistical tests than most research in the field of conflict resolution. This work and the theory that informs it deserve the most serious consideration by academics and policy makers alike.”
How this Phenomenon Can be Explained?
Theoretical physicist Dr John Hagelin explains:
“We now understand that everything in life is essentially one. At the basis of all of the variety of life there is unity. In our base we are all one, and this unity on the foundations of mind and matter is consciousness, universal consciousness. And with this deep understanding, that consciousness is not generated by the brain, it’s not the result of molecular, chemical processes in the brain, but it’s fundamental in nature, is the basis of nature, this call Unified Field.”
In the following video he explains more about this Unified Field:
He also says “It had been hypothesized, based on many different smaller experiments, that if enough people collectively were experiencing and stimulating this fundamental strong magnetic field of inner peace, it would radiate its influential peace and affect the behavior of people across society. What a novel thought… that with some extensive understanding and less strictly limited, narrow self-centered, enlarged vision, desperate acts of terrorism just did not really have a fertile field to take place.”
In the following video he speaks about the phenomenon, presenting research results:
This phenomenon is investigated until today. Here is a video with the power of collective meditation:
In 2016 there will be a free application – “Collective Consciousness”, which is based on researches and in coordination with the GCP, it will enable us to explore the nature of consciousness and reality, giving an extra boost to the creation of a “technology of consciousness.” You can see more in consciousness-app.com.
